"Corn occupied an important place in the lives of many Native communities that lived along the Upper Missouri River. In this landmark book, George F. Will and George E. Hyde introduce readers to some fifty varieties of native corn discovered in the Missouri Valley. Equally important, they provide an indispensable overview of Indian agricultural techniques there, including methods of harvesting and storing the crop, the preparation of corn for food, and the role of the crop in intertribal and Indian-white trade. Corn was not only grown, traded, and eaten, it also had spiritual significance. A final contribution of this book is a discussion of the presence and value of corn in American Indian myth, religion, and ritual"--Publisher description

The contributors, twenty-one distinguished historians, discuss the state of their profession today and describe their interests, activities, and problems. Reflecting new and exciting trends in historical research, their essays, taken together, provide a searching assessment of the major advances in historical methods as well as in historical knowledge during the 1970s"--Jacket

Reflections : the life and writings of a young blind woman in post-revolutionary France by Thérèse-Adèle Husson ( )
1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 71 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In the 1820s, several years before Braille was invented, Therese-Adele Husson, a young blind woman from provincial France, wrote an audacious manifesto about her life, French society, and her hopes for the future. Through extensive research and scholarly detective work, Catherine J. Kudlick and Zina Weygand have rescued from obscurity this intriguing woman and the remarkable story of her life and tragic death, giving readers a rare look into a world recorded by an unlikely historical figure." "Reflections is one of the earliest recorded manifestations of group solidarity among people with the same disability, advocating self-sufficiency and independence on the part of blind people, encouraging education for all blind children, and exploring gender roles for both men and women. Resolutely defying the sense of "otherness" which pervades discussions of disability, Husson instead convinces us that blindness offers a fresh and important perspective on both history and ourselves."--BOOK JACKET
